Little River-Academy, TX police chief shot dead

Posted: Updated:
LITTLE RIVER-ACADEMY, Texas (AP) - The police chief in a small Central Texas town has been shot dead while checking a report of an armed man.

Lee Dixon had been police chief in Little River-Academy for a month after holding the job previously in 2004-2005.

Lt. Donnie Adams of the Bell County Sheriff's Department says Dixon went to the scene of the call of a man with a gun about 5 p.m. Shortly thereafter, the sheriff's dispatcher began receiving calls about shots fired and an officer down.

Adams says a suspect is in custody, but his identity hasn't been released.

Situated about 10 miles south of Temple in Bell County, Little River-Academy is home to about 2,000 residents.
